of what professor dyson has just said, how does the president win over mitch mcconnell, paul ryan, speaker boehner, who have already openly said, no increases in tax rates? >> well, you have to splinter off some republicans, in the senate it will be easier because you just have to get to 60. you might pass the december 31st deadline where you have a few more democrats in the senate. but the problem is always going to be the house. i think there may be a bargain in the -- in the side of coming to republicans and saying, here are cuts. but the price of those cuts will be that 2%. republicans will face a very tough choice in just a very short time. are they the ones that are going to be responsible for giving 98% of americans tax hikes? do the republicans want to be known as the party that raised your taxes for everybody but 2%? >> right. and i think, martin -- >> so, the 2% solution may be a noose around the republicans' neck. >> i think the republicans have little leverage. not just for that reason but a couple of other reasons. if you consider the fact that taxes are at 15% of gdp, spendin
international union and senator brown on the new campaign for the middle class. paul ryan is finally speaking, and he's still in the bubble. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout especially in urban areas. >> ohio state senator turner is here to respond. the petition to see seed is growing with speed. >> deep in the heart of texas! >> find out why i agree with rick perry. texas is not allowed to leave the union. thanks for watching. president obama came back to washington to fight for fair deal on taxes. today he called on his base. i love it. he went right to the folks who put him in the white house. president obama held his first official closed door meeting with groups from outside the white house. the invited guests were all leaders of labor organizations and progressive think tanks. compare this list to the guest list for tomorrow's meeting. 12 of the most powerful ceos in american business. this schedule was not a mistake. president obama was letting the middle class and the workers of this country know, you come first! aflcio president is confident the pr
amid romney. -- mitt romney. he goes to paul ryan who is popular with the tea party. he picked him. i think a lot of people say that paul ryan is not really capable. i've got a loaded question for you -- does america really respect a black individual to be their leader? guest: it is good to end on a loaded question. let me say first that john mccain, who was a great senator, and who was the original maverick and had an independent image, i think he had a very difficult time running into thousand eight following eight years of george w. bush. it was likely time for a democratic president to win so i think john mccain had a hard assignment. with respect to the question you asked, i would say that america elected an african-american, barack obama, and after one of the most intense and expensive and bitter campaigns of all time, reelected him. i would say that is a pretty strong statement of respect for him. some people have said to mate there will be a racial vote in this election. i think it is quite likely that the people who voted against barack obama would have voted against a democr
of the republican party after romney's loss. >> congressman paul ryan, is he the leader of the republican party now? >> oh, i wouldn't think so. paul ryan is a policy -- >> well, there you go. paul ryan, you're not the leader of the republican party right now. officially here in washington, it is, speaker boehner. we're seeing more of the republican blame game. a romney supporter posted a tell all about the romney's campaign get out the vote effort known as orca. quote, this is what they told us. project orca is a massive understand taking. the newest unprecedented and most tech logically advanced plan to win the 2012 presidential election. pretty much everything in that sentence is false, this person keeps writing. and he said, the bitter iron any of this entire endeavor was that a supposedly small government candidate gutted the local structure of get out the vote efforts in favor of a centralized faceless organizations. in this case, their boston headquarters. wrap your head around that. karl rove whose failure to win victories at the helm of the cross roads had this defense on tuesday. >> he su
expected to turn over. paul ryan, vice presidential, is not going anywhere. he will be the budget chairman again, it sounds like. he will ask for a waiver because he hit his term limits, but it is safe to say it will be granted. appropriations, hal rogers from kentucky, about as old bull as you could get -- prince of earmarks and a reformed non- earmarker will stay, and where health care and energy policy, a committee of jurisdiction there, that chairman will be staying another two years. ways and means, which might see a lot of action with fiscal cliff and tax reform, entitlement stuff, always goes through ways and means -- dave camp, like fred upton. judiciary committee, he will make a bid for the science committee. he will find himself in competition with james sensenbrenner, who indicated he is interested in that job as well. ralph hall, the chairman now, term limits. transportation and infrastructure headed by john mica, he is term-limited in that role, and there are a few people will have seniority and the either have committee assignments or are not looked upon as viable. i
close election. >> despite a scoreboard of 332 to 206, congressman paul ryan refuses to admit that president obama might have a mandate to push his agenda, a big part of which includes raising taxes on high earners. this week the president is holding court with ally and opponents to discuss the upcoming fiscal cliff. yesterday, at a meeting with progressive leaders the president said he would not give in to republican demands to extend all of the bush tax cuts. today he will meet with business leaders. the discussions underscore the president's opposing constituencies, but according to new york magazine's jonathan chaits the president has to do what he want -- joining us now from washington, "new york" magazine columnist by god jonathan chait. hello, my friend. >> thank you. >> jonathan, so the president met with progressive leaders yesterday and i think gave them some welcome news. how does he handle the meeting with the business leaders today some. >> i wasn't there. they didn't invite me. i'm not a business leader. >> you think he has a clear -- i won't say mandate but the
quick point. one is very interesting role the paul ryan will play from this point on. paul ryan was simultaneously a loser and a winner on tuesday night. a winner because he won his house seat, a loser for the obvious reason but also for a couple of additional ones. it's kind of embarrassing when you put on the ticket and you can't carry your own state. but also his percentage and his own district went down significantly. at the same time there is no question that paul ryan, it was a national figure but far more recognized by those of us in the intellectual world and the cometary and then by others. paul, you go, could've walked through any airport outside of wisconsin or washington in america and might well have gone unnoticed. now obviously he is a significant national figure and include one in the mix for 2016. but he's in the next four that kind of conservative community that has dominated the primary and caucus process before. and going along with these kinds of compromises that include tax increases as part of a package, he comes a little trickier for him. and it also beco
, and remember when paul ryan after the 2010 elections, he was an icon for them, came back to the freshmen and said we cannot do the budget cuts we promised you right now. they threw him out of the room. they are not 6 " to be eager to do that. you can gain significant leverage by moving in that direction, and it would not surprise me that obama has a couple of cards up his sleeve to turn the bully pulpit into a more potent weapon in the next month. >> there are other ways of doing that. one is i think he will have simpson and bowles by his side on this. he has already committed to using that as the framework. there is evidence around that the white house has been working on revisions to that, giving it some specifics that would make it palatable to him and to most democrats as well, and there is also an effort to begin to pull out some major figures in the business community to be at his side. he would not go off the cliff without first having demonstrated what an agreement with book like -- would look like, and having it will support, including potentially some senate republicans with hi
. paul ryan. bob j ji in, dal. certainly chris christie wins re-election he would be in that pack. biden or hillary. my money is on hillary. >> i'm a biden and hillary fan. i'm going to wait at least for a little while. >> greta? >> keep your eye on governor suzanne martino. she handle their deficit problem. she was against -- she came out against something that governor romney said the self-deportation, she was on the outs a little bit with republicans. i would keep an eye on her over senator rubio. >> speaking as a journalist i'm a biden man. joe provide great copy on the republican side, if george jeb bush runs he has to be the favorite. >>> thank you very much. thank you all, fantastic roundtable. congressman schock will be answering the questions you have on twitter. >>> on this veterans day, we honor our fellow americans who serve and sacrifice. this week the pentagon released the names of four soldiers killed in afghanistan. >>> and when we come back, election night predictions. which of you got it right? i'm a conservative investor. i invest in what i know. i turned 65 last week.
. he is paul ryan's foil in on the budget committee in the house. again, a very young sort of take charge, charismatic leader, raised a lot of money. he ran the democratic congressional campaign committee for two cycles, so he has a lot of pull within the caucus. it's complicated a little bit by the fact that he and hoyer are friends, and they both represent the same state, they've run within the same circles. van hollen was the assistant to the speaker in nancy pelosi's last term as speaker, so that seems to be the surface that bubbles to the top as well. debbie wasserman schultz, the democratic committee chairwoman. nobody does that job for too long. she is looking for a way into leadership, but right now i hesitate to use terms like the smart money, but the smart money seems to be if pelosi wants to anoint a successor or get behind somebody, it would be van hollen. >> thank you. so that shakespearean drama makes what's going on in the senate look tame by comparison. what's going on if. >> i think it is pretty tame. obviously, with the senators adding two seats, harry reid, chuck
not believe you have to change the basic structure of medicare and medicaid, as paul ryan does. you can find great savings by working with the inefficiencies. >> excuse me. john. >> speaker boehner talked about not increasing tax rates for small businesses. if that framework could be accomplished, what kind of revenues could be raised within that framework? could you consider the limit on the value of deductions that the president had in his budget? >> in terms of small businesses, how do you define a small business? that is one of the slippery slopes. do you define a multibillion- dollar entertainment company, sports team, or hedge fund as a small business because their structure happens to be a business structure? everyone agrees that what we really mean when we say small business, what the typical voter envisions, is the local dry cleaner, the manufacturer who has 15 people making widgets and stuff like that. nobody thinks they should have their taxes raised. if it is used as code for people who are very wealthy and really large businesses, do not fit the traditional definition, that is a
is close to paul ryan. he's one of those 100. if paul ryan wants to run for president in 2016 -- >> they're talking about jeb bush and chris christie and marco rubio. >> but he has a big future in politics in the republican party. >> i haven't seen paul ryan in four or five months. >> anyway, all i'm suggesting is -- >> has he been around? i thought he left the country. >> they will remember. >> i won't take cheap shots. >> you think he's in the witness protection program? >> i'm not going to take a cheap shot. he has not come on on the show and he was on a lot. so i won't take a cheap shot. he hasn't been training for the marathon. that was going to be my cheap shot that i wasn't going to take, but he has not been on this show until though he used to come on all the time. >> was it a cheap shot? >> yeah. >> probably was. anyway, of course he's one of the 100. there's a the lot of guys in there that -- i know plouffe says it was a clear vote by americans that they want taxes raised. there are a lot of thins that went into that election. and i think the exit polls was at like 40% said tha
party and with governor walker, jb, and paul ryan, what a class act.

mccain had made the right choices. here comes amid romney. -- mitt romney. he goes to paul ryan who is popular with the tea party. he picked him. i think a lot of people say that paul ryan is not really capable. i've got a loaded question for you -- does america really respect a black individual to be their leader? guest: it is good to end on a loaded question. let me say first that john mccain, who was a great senator, and who was the original maverick and had an independent image, i think he had a very difficult time running into thousand eight following eight years of george w. bush. it was likely time for a democratic president to win so i think john mccain had a hard assignment. with respect to the question you asked, i would say that america elected an african-american, barack obama, and after one of the most intense and expensive and bitter campaigns of all time, reelected him. i would say that is a pretty strong statement of respect for him. some people have said to mate there will be a racial vote in this election. i think it is quite likely that the people who voted agains
are not expecting turnover. paul ryan is not going anywhere. he will be the budget chairman again it sounds like. he will ask for a waiver. it is safe to say that will be granted. the appropriations and hal rogers from kentucky who is about as old bull as you can get. old prince of earmarks and reformed nonearmarkers now is staying put. fred upton the chairman of the energy and commerce committee where a lot of health care and energy policy go through. the committee of jurisdiction there will be staying for another two years. and ways and -- any type of entitlement stuff. dave camp. he is not going anywhere either. where we are go to see significant committees where there will be turnover is the judiciary committee. he is term limited. he will make a bid for the science committee. he will find himself in competition. ralph hall, the chairman now is term limited. also the transportation and infrastructure committee. there are a few people who happen to have seniority but either have committee assignments or not looked upon as viable. we are passing the baton to a new generation. bill schuster is mak

[talking over each other] >> i think you have to realize here that the president has his own constituency. and if he gets too far off the road here, he is going to lose the democrats and particularly the liberal democrats. i mean, i saw something the other day that lyndon johnson was the majority leader of the senate. he had one republican filibuster and harry reid has had 370 filibusters in the time that he has been majority leader. that is one of
. i don't know if it is rubio vs hillary or paul ryan vs., you know, you name the candidate, the that is a lot thin for the foreseeable future. as you go from 2008 to 2010 to 2012, we have had a really wild ride. i don't believe there is any locking in. it was not even a generation ago that we talked about a republican majority. politics is a lot more dynamic than to just give a snapshot now and we all ought to rethink everything we believe in. >> i agree with what mark said to a point. i remember distinctly this day after that campaign of john kerry, driving down connecticut avenue, wondering where i will get a job and republicans will run the world forever and i will never be employed. being turned down by several lobbying firms and they have to be very good at this. i totally agree that the world changes. the difference here though is that some of these demographic changes -- the republican party will have to change. the hispanic population is not going away. the reason -- it is getting bigger and more states will get in play. the youth of the outcome until they change --
, or oversight job in the senate, just like we will do here in the house. >> why is romney and paul ryan lose and republicans lost seats in the senate and lost seats in the house, why did that happen? and what do you think the republican party needs to do to make sure it doesn't happen again? >> can you just identifiers of? >> jonathan weissman from "the new york times." >> i think that's a great question, and i know many of us are looking and thinking about that, but i, i don't think we lost by being too conservative and articulating our principles to clearly. i think was actually the opposite. that the 2012 -- the 2010 election was a wave election, tremendous response from the same folks that propelled the single largest republican majority in decades. i don't think they turned on and on its agenda will, we don't want to cut spending, we don't want to balance our budgets. that's not what he said. but a very slim margin of 51%, the president was reelected. and what we needed it is actually i think do a better job and that's what conservatives have been saying, articulate conservative princip
the election, paul ryan came out very strongly in favor of tom price. suggesting that the -- if tom price wins then paul ryan, his credibility is sort of juiced, will go up in terms of his influence on -- on the republican conference. if price wins it might signal a more conservative, hard-edged bent to the republicans. if mcmorris rodgers wins, it might signal the leadership is starting to get this house in order and wanting to moderate some -- at least its approach. host: hear from chris, republican caller, joining us from round lake, illinois. good morning. chris: good morning. thank you for taking my call. i have a question here. as a fiscal cliff comes and you are discussing what to do with it, with social security and medicare, i was wondering why the public employees in congress and senators don't pay into that system, why they are eliminated from it. host: we are running out of time before the house comes in. our caller bringing up one of the many issues that we'll be addressing as we watch the lame duck session. thank you so much for coming in on a busy morning for roll call. house ed

, paul ryan will have to get a waiver from his house caucus colleagues to stay on his budget chair. i'm betting that that happens because he is still, i think, a rising star in the party. but he has that little thing that he's got to go through, which is to get a vote in the caucus before he can continue. >> mark. >> the other big element which is out there, not a january 1st thing but early 2013 thing is raising the debt ceiling. and remember, for the house republicans, that was a big bargaining chip. >> right. >> and a big element. we don't know the exact date. but when people talk about a deal, that's one thing you've got to factor in, will house republicans be willing to give an extension to deal with tax reform and other things if no one thinks can be dealt with in the lame duck or early next year and get something in return for agreeing to raise the debt ceiling. i'm ready to admit the first thing i've already been wrong about, the president said the fever will break and a deal will come into place more easily. still difficult but more easily than has happened so far. i was skep
